I struggle with this one........I was in an abusive relationship for 10 years. Truly the lowest point of my life. But I got myself in to it, then I got myself out. That being said, not once did I feel like someone else should pay for the mistake I made. The other issue with this is the problem of being able to prove abuse, law enforcement is still on a slippery slope when having to deal with domestic abuse. I can see this costing far too much of our tax dollars. If this was set up to protect just children of abuse I would be all over it but, adults need to take care of themselves.
